This week, we dive into our second hundred episodes by covering another great television gem! And what could be more schlocky than a guy who sort of works for the government, but sort of not, and goes around the world saving the day by jury-rigging his way through his adventures?
So, which episodes do we cover? We start with Season 1, episode 5 entitled The Heist. That features MacGyver in an elaborate diamond heist from a casino. Yep. Really. Then we try to get a little more serious by covering Season 1, episode 6 entitled Trumbo’s World. And this one’s all about MacGyver‘s trip to the amazon jungle to fight a giant swarm of killer ants!
IMPROVISE… a way to relax and listen as the guys talk about birds, jewels, fiber optics, and green screens!!!
WHIP-UP… a snack and settle in for a discussion about the lost era of the TV opening theme!!!
ENGINEER…a way to listen in to a serious discussion about MacGyver versus Batman!!!
We found MacGyver streaming on Netflix, so you can catch up on old episodes there! Or, if you want, we also found the episodes in question available to rent from Amazon. Look for them in our store in the Video On Demand section! When you’re done there, please look up Schlock Treatment on iTunes and rate the podcast for us! We read all new reviews on the air! Then be sure to subscribe for next week!
Next Treatment: We’re out of town for Thanksgiving, but we’ll return December 1st with a series of holiday themed movies and shows, starting with Jack Frost!
